psionl0: Ahh! Classic Monday. A Queen sac followed by a quick mate and all of White's moves forced. A 10 second solution. A personal best for me.

psionl0: @Once I agree. This is a much more commonplace problem than the usual "flashy" problems we see. It is also much more instructional. As well as highlighting the risks of PPP it also serves as a reminder of how clumsy the rook is. (Alas I missed that pawn move).

psionl0: This must be a Monday puzzle. I saw the solution within 30 seconds. 43...Rxg2 44.Kxg2 a2 and the pawn can't be stopped from queening. Black's bishop even guards the d7 square so White doesn't even have the option of a few nuisance checks.

psionl0: Not the crushing victory you would normally expect from a Monday puzzle. 27...Ba6! and White must sacrifice his Bishop and permit the exchange of Queens and his knight for Bishop. 28.Bd5 Qxd5 29.Ne3 (White's Queen can't move) 29...Bxf1 30.Nxd5 exd5 31 Kxf1
 
   May-10-16 A Adamski vs G Szilagyi, 1976 (replies)
 
psionl0: @saturn2 Black can't Queen the h-pawn. 50...Kg4 51.d5 Kxg3 52.d6 h4 53.d7 h3 54.d8(Q) h2 55.Qc6! Kf2 56.Qh1 Kg3 57.Ke2! Kh3 58.Kf3! and the Black King must abandon the pawn.

psionl0: My favourite kind of victory - delivering mate with a pawn.
 
   Mar-14-16 K Spraggett vs Z Abdumalik, 2014 (replies)
 
psionl0: What? No Q-sac? It CAN'T be Monday!
 
   Jan-25-16 Zhu Chen vs G Suez-Panama, 2014 (replies)
 
psionl0: Not my finest Monday. I missed the mate in 2. I came up with 51.R1xc6 Qxc7 (forced) 52.Rxc7 winning Q+N for R. I didn't see it all the way through but forced mate was inevitable by this stage. In fact, 52...g5 is the only way to delay mate by 1 move.

psionl0: 10 seconds.
 
   Oct-07-15 F Destrebecq vs G Drogou, 1982 (replies)
 
psionl0: I would like to brag about how clever I was to solve this problem in 5 minutes. However, it took 4 of those minutes to realize that White's King was in check. Once I realized that, the game played itself.
